What usually clutters a bedroom? Clothes, papers or stuff from work, kids toys? The bedroom is supposed to be the place for us to rest and if it is too cluttered I doubt if one can get as much rest as you need.

So how does one organize things so the bedroom becomes more or less uncluttered? Here's some tips I've come up with while managing the clutter in out own bedroom.

Most of us don't have the luxury of having big walk-in closets, but still whatever kind of closet you have in your room can be a big help in controlling the clutter. Organize your closets. Have one for hubby and one for yourself. Clothes already clean and ironed should go straight in and not left about the bedroom.Justify Full

Get a laundry basket but don't put it in the room. Place it near the laundry area and make it a habit to put soiled clothes there not on top of the bed or in the bedroom.

Our daughter likes hanging out in the room, watching TV, at times doing her homework, or playing. I have a rule about not eating on the bed because crumbs can fall down and I certainly don't want to sleep with ants. Playing kids will always bring along toys, so I have a box inside the bedroom for her to keep her stuff.

If you sometimes do some paperwork or reading on the bedroom, have a place for these things. If you have extra space inside the room, get a small working table and organize your paper clutter there. Having accordion type envelopes or plastic file keepers are big help in organizing paper clutter.
